    SYNOPSIS

           free  [-b  |  -k | -m | -g | -h] [-o] [-s delay ] [-c count ] [-a] [-t]
           [-l] [-V]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           free displays the total amount of free and used physical and swap  mem-
           ory  in  the  system,  as  well as the buffers used by the kernel.  The
           shared memory column represents the 'Shmem' value.  The available  mem-
           ory column represents the 'MemAvailable' value.
    
       Options
           The  -b  switch  displays  the amount of memory in bytes; the -k switch
           (set by default) displays it in kilobytes; the -m switch displays it in
           megabytes; the -g switch displays it in gigabytes.
    
           The  -h  switch  displays all output fields automatically scaled to the
           shortest (three digit) representation including the  unit.  That  makes
           the values human readable.
    
           The -t switch displays a line containing the totals.
    
           The -o switch disables the display of a "buffer adjusted" line.  If the
           -o option is not specified, free subtracts buffer memory from the  used
           memory and adds it to the free memory reported.
    
           The -s switch activates continuous polling delay seconds apart. You may
           actually specify any floating point number for delay, usleep(3) is used
           for microsecond resolution delay times.
    
           The  -c  switch used together with the -s switch interrupts the polling
           after count repetitions.
    
           The -l switch shows detailed low and high memory statistics.
    
           The -a switch shows the available memory (if supported by  the  running
           kernel  and  enabled  with sysctl -w vm.meminfo_legacy_layout=0 ; shows
           zero when unsupported or disabled). The produced output is  wider  than
           80 characters.
    
           The -V switch displays version information.
